A twister...a real life twister. Yup, we sure did. Now for me it was nothing too out of the ordinary (being that I live right in the middle of Tornado Alley) but for many members of my team is quite the new experience. So here's the scene:
We're driving up I-29 just north of Sioux Falls, SD and there to our left appears a pretty unique cloud formation known as a funnel cloud. At this point, I looked away from the formation, having seen them before and realizng that it was some distance away. But, I soon heard from my teammates that it definitely touched the ground and threw up quite a cloud of debris. Needless to say, it was quite exciting.
Parents and family, there is no need to worry. The storm was nowhere near our van and we made it safely to the church shortly after that and were prepared to take shelter if need be.
It was a great highlight to our first weekend on the road.
Thanks to all those who came out to our workshop on Saturday and the worship service on Sunday. They were both great experiences.
